Nordyke October, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory This is an informal report intended primarily for internal or limited external distribution. The opinions and conclusions stated are those of the author and may or may not be those of the : M.D. Nordyke.   Previous treaties have restricted nuclear testing: the Limited Test Ban Treaty barred explosions in the atmosphere, in space, and under water, and the U.S.-U.S.S.R. Threshold Test Ban Treaty and the Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty limited the explosive yield of underground nuclear explosions.

      The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty of prohibits all nuclear explosions, regardless of whether they are for peaceful purposes or not. Since that time the topic has been raised several times, often as a method of asteroid impact avoidance.   In Silencing the Bomb: One Scientist’s Quest to Halt Nuclear Testing, Lynn Sykes offers a fascinating look at the time and effort it took for states, during and after the Cold War, to agree on a Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). Sykes’s work contains a sweeping overview of his passion, which is not only seismology but the effect.

The United States and Soviet Union are subject to verification provisions.

Compliance is monitored through the use of national technical means (e.g. seismic stations outside the testing country).

Threshold Test Ban Treaty (TTBT) prohibits the underground testing of nuclear weapons having yields about kilotons (kt), and restricts the conduct of tests below kt to certain established test sites.
